Design by Carina Grace

I almost stumbled upon Double Knitting by accident but once I found my way in the world I knew I wanted to design something that reminded me of my lineage. I wanted to go on a knitting journey that spoke to my childhood fantasies. Of Celtic knots and what it would have been like to grow up in the green isles. I also wanted something that could be kept as an heirloom, folded up, and passed down through generations. So I designed a baby blanket that could be used, worn, kept, and remembered. I hope you love knitting through this journey as much as I did.
